Striking glass artwork is intoxicating. You know the type of pieces I mean. The spectacular beauties you admire in galleries and magazines, the ones that haunt the back of your mind until you figure out how they were made, or give up in frustration. Creating your own stunning emotive art that engages the viewer to the point of blissful distraction is within your reach.

Join veteran glass artist Lisa Vogt in this comprehensive workshop focused on making exhibition quality artwork and you’ll learn how to take your thriving glass talent and catapult it forward. Through lecture, demonstration and hands-on exercises, Lisa will show you how to accelerate your creative vision. Students will learn how to design thoughtful compositions, how to mix colors to create drama, how to get noticed with pattern, how to stimulate with texture, and how to combine abstract techniques for innovative works of fused glass art.

You’ll learn how easily you can put your tried and true methods to use in unlikely combinations to take your artwork to an exciting, new level of sophistication. Through demonstrations and practical hands-on activates, students will learn how to successfully pair commonly separate techniques, to produce refreshingly new dramatic effects.

It gets better! In this advanced technique driven workshop, Lisa will show you how taking new approaches to glass selection, construction, firing temperatures and design, will grow the scope of your creativity and greatly advance the quality of your work. Techniques include Lisa’s ground breaking new Free-Flow process for artful color blends plus: weaving, kiln combing, constructing organic shapes, embellishing with embossing, dramatic shading with frit and creative slumping. During the hands-on portion of class, you’ll merge these new-found concepts and processes to fashion your own innovative pieces of art.

You’ll put these newly realized theories into immediate practice making multi-faceted projects. Lisa will guide you step-by-step through every phase of fabrication including design, material selection, project assembly, effective fusing practices and finishing techniques including trendy display possibilities.

Cost:TBD
Workshop Dates:

*GROUPON COUPONS ARE NOT VALID FOR THIS WORKSHOP

This is not a “make and bake” class, but probably the most important workshop you can take, as it will be the foundation for all subsequent fusing classes. Get ready to "put it all together" in a fun, fast paced informative class designed to introduce students to the terminology, tools and techniques of basic fusing and slumping of kiln formed glass. Hand outs are centered on building upon essential knowledge to include types of fusing glass, COE and compatibility and why glass reacts the way is does when exposed to heat. Learn proper glass cutting skills, firing schedules, kiln operation and maintenance, mold preparation, studio safety and troubleshooting.

Students will create up to 4 projects from techniques and materials demonstrated in class which include dichroic jewelry, kiln carving, pocket vases and more. The final project will incorporate these techniques into a 12" bowl or sculpture. Day 2 will cover cold-working techniques and mold preparation to give your projects that "gallery quality" appearance. All projects will be fired in the kiln at the end of class and will be available for pick up in a few days or shipping arrangements can be made.

Please bring a sack lunch – beverages will be provided
